By The Associated Press
BROOKVILLE — Two men died early Wednesday in a mobile home fire in rural southeastern Indiana, investigators with the Indiana State Fire Marshal said.
The victims, ages 57 and 50, were found during a search of the fire debris outside of Brookville, investigators said.
The call to the home came in about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday. A third adult male, age 39, reported he awoke to smoke in the home and fire on an exterior porch, investigators said. He was able to escape with minor abrasions and smoke inhalation and was treated and released at the scene.
When crews arrived, the home was fully engulfed. Once the fire was extinguished, investigators were able to survey the home and determine the only source of heat was a wood-burning stove.
Relatives of the residents were notified and provided DNA samples to help provide positive identification, investigators said. Final identification from the Franklin County coroner was pending.
